Some of our Year 7 students have won Scitech vouchers, canteen vouchers and House Points for their outstanding environmental projects created as part of an English inquiry-based learning assessment.
Congratulations to Malia Rahayudha who was voted the Judges’ Choice Award and Joshua Ward who won the Students’ Choice Award.
Eight students were given Rising Star Awards for their innovative thinking and creativity – well done to Riley Binnie, Blake Roebuck, Addison Maughan, Toby Kettlewell, Cooper Crooke, Natalia Hall, Jack McLaren and Jacob Cartwright.
The project asked students to research an environmental issue they felt passionate about, develop a solution to pitch to their classmates, construct a model using recyclable materials and write an analysis report.
English Dean Aimee Vukman said students came up with forward-thinking solutions a vast range of issues, including coral bleaching, ocean pollution and animal poaching.
“This STEM project encourages students to problem solve on their own, enabling students with critical thinking skills to really shine,” she said.
The top 27 projects from across all Year 7 classes were on display this week for students and staff to vote for the winners.
